Former boxing champion Conjestina Achieng’ is putting in the work as her recovery continues to take shape.
Conje, as she is popularly known, has been undergoing rehabilitation at the Mombasa Women Empowerment Network Hospital in Miritini, where she was admitted in September 2022.
Eight months later, Conjestina is doing well according to sports journalist Carol Radull.
Taking to social media Wednesday, Radull shared photos showing Conje in good shape and breaking a sweat at the gym.
Radull said that upon completion of her rehab program, Conjestina will be working as a trainer.
“Eight months in the centre in Mombasa and my girl Conjestina Achieng looks so good! Work in a gym awaits her upon completion where she will be training young boxers,” she said.
Radull further thanked former Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko, who helped Conjestina get into the rehab program.
In response, Mike Sonko pledged more goodies for the celebrated Kenyan pugilist. He plans to set her up with a security job at his famous club in Mombasa.
“This time round we are not releasing her to go back to Siaya. Immediately, she is discharged after fully recovering, I have already prepared a good plan for her where she will also be earning a salary. She will be the overall assistant head of security and head of all female bouncers at Club Volume Mombasa at night & during peak hours/holidays,” Sonko pledged.
He added: “She will also serve as the head trainer in all the gyms in our establishments (Salama Bling Beach Resort, Kimeremeta Safari Lodge etc…). As a long-term measure, we are intending to open for her a boxing training centre where she will be coaching boxing.”
